Tancredo Tells Young Conservatives to Halt All Immigration
This past weekend at the Young America’s Foundation’s Summit on Radical Islam, former Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-CO) once again advocated for an immigration policy that closes the nation’s doors to all foreign workers, regardless of their skill-level. When one young UCLA conservative questioned whether it would actually be wise to turn away the high-skilled labor of other countries, Tancredo said he’d like to “try” shutting off all immigration:
QUESTION: We’re still really strapped — we don’t have nurses, we don’t have enough teachers, we don’t have enough OB-GYNs…So isn’t it a little maybe narr — I’m not saying narrow-minded — but maybe not looking at the picture accurately if you say we can just shut off all immigration?
TANCREDO: Well…[Laughs]…I’d like to give it a try. [More laughing].
